Racism in the United States
Racism has always been a problem in this country starting when white settlers from England made this their home. The white settlers stole from Native American people and murdered many of them as well. However,that was just the beginning of the long racist history of the country now known as the United States of America. For centuries black people were enslaved by white people and they endured unspeakable crimes committed against them.
It was not uncommon for slave owners to rape female slaves nor was it uncommon for black people to be lynched. This hatred of black people still exists to this very day and the hatred is spreading to include anyone who has brown skin,especially Muslims. The fact that we have a president who has an irrational hatred of anyone who isn't white only makes racial tensions worse. I'm smart enough to know that racism never ended in this country but Donald Trump has lead all of these white supremacists and Nazis to believe that our country is under siege from immigrants when that couldn't be farther from the truth. The real threat is white supremacists and Nazis who have been spurred to act because of the words and actions of Donald Trump.
